Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma, a third person action hack and slash video game, is the violent and bloody sequel to the original Afro Samurai video game which was based on the animated series of the same name. The game will be released over three distinct volumes, each with its own story arc, characters and fighting styles to master, in addition to a unique soundtrack created by up-and-coming indie hip-hop artists that have been mentored by the one and only RZA of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan.
Quotes from the creators:
“I’m all about giving people opportunities. I think a lot of new talent will be discovered through things like this,” commented hip-hop artist Big Sean on using independent artists for the soundtrack. He continued, “What I appreciate about [Afro Samurai 2] is that it’s good music, good rap music, good storytelling. It takes it back to the basics of hip-hop… The music helps tell the story.”
David Robinson, lead designer on Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma and President and Founder of Redacted Studios added, “…we have the rap which comes and tells the story of the scene you’re actually playing—and that’s what makes it a phenomenal integration of sight and sound. It’s literally a hip-hop opera. You’re listening to the rap because it’s telling you what’s going on in the story that you are playing.”
Loving the game’s music and feel! So epic! 😀
